on republicans warning that our economy, jobs, lives, could be in danger, if these scheduled cuts across the board go through. but the latest numbers show if the automatic reductions take place, there will be 85 billion dollars in cuts this year. that's equal to what the government spends in nine days. even if it happens, the government is projected more than last year, so he you see, we're talking about a decrease in the increase in spending and you may be asking yourself how can we survive and live on, with just the paltry amount of spending? well, where would we look for the example? how about last year when we did it just fine? all this leading to questions about how the fallout could be so dramatic. so dire, so awful. when the total federal budget is actually increasing. chris stirewalt is our national digital news editor. how can we do it? where can we find the historical example of the surviving on a budget that's cut in this manner. oh, last year. i mean, what's the answer to that. why are the politicians, you know, chicken littling us? >> well, remember this, if there , if there

the broader economy and the republicans acknowledge that but are not ready to go back to the negotiating table right now. >> ken, i guess the other point here is that, you know, if the sequester happens and, for example, in "the washington times" today, they talked about the ripple effect on defense contractors and the thousands of jobs that they are preparing to have layoffs for because of the threat of sequester. i mean, who gets the blame if the economy starts to tank? >> right. well, congress gets the blame more generally and that is what i think is sort of lost here in the jockeying, the positioning and pointing fingers at both sides. we already see historic negative approval ratings for congress. it's only going to get down to both parties detriment. however, i do think the president, by virtue of having this bully pulpit we will see him exercise later this morning and presumely for the next several days, does have a little bit of the upper hand here. i'm not sure if it's quite so much that he can convince republicans to accept additional tax increases as perry suggested is very unlikely

continues to face very large economic and budget challenges. let me discuss the economy first, and then i'll turn to the budget. we anticipate that economic growth will remain slow this year because the gradual improvement that we've seen underlying economic factors will be offset by a tightening of federal fiscal policy scheduleed under current law. the good news is the effects of the housing and financial crisis appear to be finally, gradually, fading. we expect that an upswing in housing construction, rising real estate and stock prices and increasing availability of credit will help to spur a virtuous to cycle of faster growth in employment, income, consumer spending and business investment during the next few years. however, several policies that will help to bring down the budget deficit will represent a drag on economic activity this year. the expiration of the two percentage point cut in the social security payroll tax, the increase in tax rates on income above certain thresholds and the cuts in federal spending kennelinged to take effect -- scheduled to take effect next month wil
